TERROR Debuts New Videos For “In Spite Of These Times” and “One More Enemy

Influential hardcore band TERROR has debuted a new music video today that combines two of the hardest hitting tracks, “In Spite Of These Times” and “One More Enemy,” from their recently released, critically praised album, Total Retaliation, which is out now from Pure Noise Records. Watch the videos below.

“This is one of my favorites songs on the new album. Different sounding then anything we have ever written and with the visual it encompasses what Terror is about in 2018 to infinity.” – Scott Vogel
Terror’s new video’s premiere coincides with the band’s announcement of a tour with Hatebreed that will kick off in April 2019. Tickets are on sale now!
Known for their unrelenting, furious style of metal infused hardcore, LA’s homegrown TERROR holds nothing back on the band’s latest record, Total Retaliation, which features Will Putney (Thy Art Is Murder, Body Count, Knocked Loose) in the producer’s chair and is the band’s first new material since last year’s The Walls Will Fall EP. Clocking in at just under 30 minutes, Total Retaliation is a succinct yet intense message of resistance within a world that can inspire little else. It’s a helping hand for the disillusioned and a firm middle finger to the authorities that are tearing apart society as we know it. As the band’s 7th full length studio album it serves as yet another example of why TERROR have not only endured, but remained at the top of their game for over 15 years.

Scott Vogel of Terror – “Victory Records was always cool to Terror. All the labels we have worked with have been.”

Scott Vogel (born April 5, 1973 in Buffalo, New York, United States) and currently living in Los Angeles, California, is the current vocalist and founding member of five-piece American hardcore band Terror, formerly of Buried Alive as well as the vocalist of hardcore / punk band World Be Free.

Terror have always been a name synonymous with hardcore. From their inception in 2002, the band have displayed a level of steadfast dedication unlike any other in the scene. Now with six studio albums, a series of live albums, splits, compilations and EP’s under their belts, the scene veterans are gearing up to release their latest full length ‘Total Retaliation’.

The new album which is penned for a September 28th release date features Fit For An Autopsy’s Will Putney (Thy Art Is Murder, Body Count, Knocked Loose) in the producers chair and is the band’s first new material since last years ‘The Walls Will Fall’ EP. Clocking in at just under 30 minutes, ‘Total Retaliation’ is a succinct yet intense message of resistance within a world that can inspire little else.

 

How did you first get in to music? Who turned you onto punk, metal and hardcore? What was the album you bought?

My brother was into punk and exposed me to all this crazy underground shit. A few of the first albums I owned where Social Distortion’s “ Mommy’s Little Monster “ and the Minor Threat Lp

How did you become a vocalist? Are you proficient in any instruments?

I at one point could kinda play the drums but that’s about it. I also got a bass years ago pretending I would learn and it just sat there. I guess seeing local bands in buffalo like Solid State and Zero Tolerance made me think I wanna do that and why can’t I. These dudes are just like me.

What was the local scene like in the beginning, was there a particular band or vocalist you aspired to be like? Was there a particular sound you were going for?

I used to worship Zero Tolerance and their frontman Mark. I mean I guess I still kinda do. Buffalo hardcore was so good when I got involved. So many great bands would come thru and the shows were always packed and real. I guess I was always drawn to the harder edge of hardcore with my bands but still always have loved softer stuff like Supertouch and Split Lip

What motivates you, to keep releasing new music in the age of sharing and stealing? Does it dampen your creativity at all knowing that all of your hard work will be just given away possibly weeks prior to its official release date?

Nah. That stuff doesn’t affect me at all. For me its more about the end result not the sale. When the music and words create an unstoppable energy and you wrap it up in cool artwork and photos. That’s the pay off. Not the 22 cents per unit each band member would maybe see one day.

Which of the past record labels, you’ve been on were the least shady and do record labels in general get a bad rap?

Victory Records was always cool to Terror. All the labels we have worked with have been. But keep in mind we aren’t the biggest band selling tons of records. I don’t know I can only speak for myself. Of course we always want more of a push and the label to work harder but on a fairness scale things have been solid

So, how was producing and putting this record together different than what you guys have previously done? Were any cover songs or bonus tracks recorded for special releases or for the Japanese market?

It’s was business as usual with making this record. But to be honest we had a lot of music written and working with Will Putney was easy and smooth. No bonus or cover songs. The record is complete and there will be no other versions!

What is the writing process like for you? How do you pick what you want to keep and release and what gets tossed aside? With practically every song on Total Retaliation being a hardcore slammer, how do you go about placing the songs in order one through thirteen? Have you ever written and recorded with a side A and side B in mind?

Nick and Jordan come up with tons of music and riffs and I kinda give feedback on which ones I’m feeling. Actually Chris wrote a few on this record too. After that we flush them all out and make them complete and last the words are laid over the music and we have a song. Its hard getting a track list in order. Different people have different ideas and sometimes you don’t wanna bend.

What keeps you passionate about Terror and hardcore after all these years?

I still love this community and this band. It’s that simple. I still believe and feel this shit

Top 5 albums or songs released in 2018 and/or of all time?

2018
Racquet Club – “Blood on the Moon”
Conway the Machine – “Goat”
Freedom – “Never Had a Choice”
Citizen – “As you Please”
Combust – demo

What does hardcore mean to you?

That’s not really something, I can sum up in a few sentences. This is my life and it helped mold my mind and kept me young at heart and fully free and against the grain in an ugly world.

Brand Spankin New Video From Terror

66

Los Angeles hardcore act Terror released their new album, ‘Live by the Code,’ last year via Victory Records. Today, the band has teamed up with Revolver to premiere their new music video for “Cold Truth.”

Frontman Scott Vogel said, “How many times can you make a video of us jumping around acting all mad at the world? I’m sure we’ll have a few more of those down the road, but this is a totally different, unexpected, and a fresh look for a Terror video, and that’s a cool thing. Thanks to Carlo and everyone behind putting this thing together because, to be honest, we got off extra easy and didn’t have to do any of those really uncomfortable video shoots and nonsense. Plus, now we have a video with hookers, handfuls of pills, and dead rats in it.”
